As many of you probably know, Las Vegas Hash House Harrier Bloody A-hole, nerd name Ronald Kirk, was reported missing on Monday, January 22, 2012. He was last seen on January 16th and last heard from on January 17th via a text message in which he stated a desire to go hiking.
His red JEEP wrangler was located in the parking lot at Calico Basin late Monday night and yesterday morning hashers from Sin City, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and Long Beach spent tireless hours on trail in search of our friend.
After an unsuccessful aerial search performed Monday night and part of the day Tuesday, the investigation was transferred to Metro Missing Persons. The POC is Detective Roberto Juarez (R3831J@LVMPD.com). The detectives are also keeping an eye on facebook traffic; police and hashers alike ask that Ron's page is used as the central update spot. In doing so, Detective Juarez impresses upon people to be mindful of the difference between a 'lead' versus a 'fact' when sharing information. Ron's page is public, anyone can see it (i.e. media) so speak tentatively and avoid spreading misinformation. Encourage all new leads to contact the detective via e-mail.
